PAOLI, Okla. (AP) _ A Dallas man dies today after an accident involving a tractor trailer on Interstate 35 in northern Garvin County.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the accident happened about 12:15 p-m on northbound I-35.
The O-H-P says a vehicle driven by 39-year-old Emanuel Alberto Gueiterrez-Ortega was passing a tractor trailer driven by 55-year-old Michael Phillip Barrows of Mills, Wyoming, at an unsafe speed when Gueiterrez-Ortega lost control, causing his vehicle to hit a guardrail.
The tractor trailer then struck his vehicle. Gueiterrez-Ortega was pinned for about 20 minutes in the wreckage and died at the scene.
Barrows was not injured. A passenger in Gueiterrez-Ortega's vehicle, 27-year-old Josefa A- Castillo of Dallas, was treated and released from a Pauls Valley hospital.
